A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Welcome to Road Trip Breakdown, a match 3 game with a twist created by 4 Game Developer students. 

You are on a journey traveling from one destination to the next. The thing is, the car the you are driving is the worst car you could possibly do a road trip in. The car keeps breaking down and in order to repair the car and continue on the trip you have to match certain elements in a specific order, in a certain amount of time, in order to successfully repair the car and continue on the road trip.


  • Choose different cars to go on your road trip, each car has unique problems
  • Unique, sequential match 3 gameplay
  • Two modes: Standard and Endless


Best played with keyboard. Use WASD and U key to navigate and match items. For multiplayer, player one uses WASD, R to match and player 2 uses arrow keys and U to match.

To match:

Navigate to item you would like to switch, press U then navigate to where you would like it to go and press U again. Vice versa for R in multiplayer.
